About Beauty, Emma talked about it a bit during 'Perks' promotion:
"We [del Toro and I] met a week or two ago, and we started working on the script, and it's going to go next summer. It's so funny, obviously I've been doing a lot of other work, and I was nervous. I was like, 'Is this going to go away?' And Guillermo is so psyched about it, and he's like been thinking about it so much." "He brought the book," Watson continued, referencing the director's infamous sketchbooks in which he logs his ideas. "I was like, 'Ah, this is killing me.' I'm very excited."
